When installing BlackFog it automatically creates a service in order to operate correctly on your system. If the user account has been modified by a system administrator the installer may fail to create and execute the service under you local account. You will see the message “Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services”.

If you are running Windows 10 you must also disable “Restricted Mode”.

Windows 10S

If you are running Windows 10S or Windows 10 is S Mode you will need to switch to the full version of Windows 10 which is a one way free conversion otherwise you cannot run third party apps outside the Windows store.

To switch to the normal mode, go to your Windows Settings menu and click on Update & Security then Activation. Find the Switch to Windows 10 Home or Pro sections and then click the Go to the Store link. You’ll be directed to a webpage for switching out of S mode.

Normally user accounts within Windows already have the appropriate privileges to install a service correctly. However, some systems have this modified to prevent local accounts from doing this. In these situations it is important that the permission is granted using the procedure below.

Follow these steps to modify the privilege:

  1. Click Start, point to Run, type mmc, and then click OK.
  2. On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.
  3. In Add/Remove Snap-in, click Add, and then, in Add Standalone Snap-in, double-click Group Policy Object Editor.
  4. In Group Policy Object, click Browse, browse to the Group Policy object (GPO) that you want to modify, click OK, and then click Finish.
  5. Click Close, and then click OK.
  6. In the console tree, expand Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies  > User Rights Assignment.
  7. In the details pane, find and double-click “Log on as a service.”
  8. If the security setting has not yet been defined, select the Define these policy settings check box.
  9. Click Add User or Group, and then add the appropriate account to the list of accounts that possess the Log on as a service right.
